Where in the world companies should source, assemble, formulate, produce, or distribute their goods is a topic of much debate. From offshoring to nearshoring to rightshoring, and even so-called nextshoring, today’s leaders are scratching their collective heads.
These are clearly confusing times. Global transportation networks have erased borders and brought companies closer to untapped demand and affordable labor.
GloboEsporte.comWendell Lira, a 27-year-old player for the Brazilian soccer club Goianésia, is retiring to play the "FIFA" video game full-time, according to Brazilian soccer news site GloboEsporte.com.
Many of us would also like to announce our retirements to focus on playing "FIFA." But unless you're really, really good at it, it's probably a terrible idea.
Good thing, then, that Lira is really, really good at "FIFA."
On November 6, 2015, Lira took on the "FIFA" world champion at the time, a Saudi Arabian gamer named Abdulaziz Alshehri, in a match between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
REUTERS/Gonzalo FuentesTOULON, France (Reuters) - Two people suspected of links to terrorism were arrested on Friday by armed police officers on a high-speed train in Toulon, in the south of France, and the train was searched, a train conductor announced to passengers, according to a Reuters witness.
The TGV train was traveling from Nice to Paris.
"There were two people suspected of planning an attack and they were removed from the train," the conductor announced over the public address system.
REUTERS/Scott AudettePeople responded more favorably to Hillary Clinton's convention speech than they did to Donald Trump's, according to a CNN/ORC instant poll that compared audience reaction to both.
After Clinton's speech, 71% of viewers CNN polled reacted positively. After Trump's speech, 57% of people said they reacted positively.
Clinton's speech might also help move the election polls in her favor — 60% of viewers said they were more likely to vote for Clinton after watching her address, while only 6% said they were less likely and 33% said it didn't affect their vote either way.
And 82% of those CNN polled said Clinton's policies would move the country in the right direction.
During her speech, Clinton said the country was at "a moment of reckoning," presenting herself as the responsible choice for president instead of Trump.
Clinton cited President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's best-known remark in a rebuke of Trump's platform, saying "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
She later took a shot at one of Trump's comments from the Republican convention in Cleveland last week by telling the audience they shouldn't "believe anyone who says, 'I alone can fix it.'"
Clinton officially accepted the Democratic nomination for president at the party's convention in Philadelphia this week, and Trump accepted the Republican nomination at that convention last week in Cleveland.
Baker Hughes will publish its weekly counts of US oil and gas rigs just after 1 p.m. ET.
The oil rig count rose for a fourth straight period last week, by 14 to 371. The count has moved higher since mid-May, as rising oil prices preceding that period encouraged producers to bring rigs online.
